Statement MASK

In August 2011 I set up my studio in the Kunstraum Bernsteiner where I created the intermedia installation MASK, which then was exhibited there 2011 / 2012. With black and white ink I painted onto pedestal objects. This process was videotaped with an action cam which was fastened to my arm, and a second camera which was positioned on a tripod. 30 age-resistant mount boards were lined on the floor, to fix the traces of working. In the presentation form the boards are positioned on the wall and the whole installation is staged with spotlights. In addition to this, a video loop is projected in the exhibition space. It is not a documentation of the working process, but a clip that forms one element alongside others. The bluebox-blue, greenbox-green, neon yellow and silver of the masks, which veil the pedestals in the show, are removed in the video by keying or via a colour matte, and so the pedestals, and myself as the acting artist in the close up, partially disappear.

Mask_Green #01

2009
Green Mask #1
two-part work:
1. Pedestal: raw chipboard, black and white ink, 165.5 cm x 25.5 cm x 25.5 cm; mask: Trevira, greenbox green, 200 g/m², certified poorly inflammable according to DIN 4102 B1
2. Working underlay: age-resistant museum board made from 100% cotton fibre, museum quality, hedge green, 81 cm x 101 cm

The pedestal of Mask_Green #01 corresponds with my body height. The mask is made from greenbox green Trevira, a material that is used for greenbox keying. A working underlay of age-resistant museum board was used to capture the ink that ran down. In the presentation form this board is framed and positioned on the wall.
